Prayers.

I posted a picture on instagram yesterday of my class praying; regardless of it being an American school and following an American curriculum, students also take Arabic and Religion as core courses which I think is valuable to them. They are starting to learn how to pray in religion class so I asked the religion teacher if I could tag along to watch. Everyone came prepared in their thoubs and head scarves and some with prayer mats which was adorable! I had to take sneaky pictures because almost no one wanted their photo taken lol faces were hurting and they ‘couldn’t breathe’ but it was the cutest thing ever! Watching them go through the motions and recite surahs was kind of a moment in and of itself that I think only a Muslim would be able to appreciate and feel emotional over. I felt like my little girls were growing up and that this was an important milestone in their ickle second grade lives lol this is something that they’ll most probably use for the rest of their lives and is one of the main pillars of their faith and kind of like when a child loses his or her first tooth and its like ohmygyash its a ‘first’! I experienced that type of warm fuzzy feeling in my heart yesterday afternoon and it made my heart smile x
